Bacon is better than rutabagas.

rutabagas are better if served with bacon. Actually everything is better when served with bacon. A local restaurant (Leon's in Decatur for the GA folks) has a starter that is a glass of bacon served with peanut butter. I told my wife about and she was skeptical so i took her there for lunch a few Sundays ago and now she is a true believer. Around the corner from Leon's is another establishment that has been serving bacon-infused drinks (The Iberian Pig). Last month it was bacon-infused rye.

"glass of bacon served with peanut butter"

that sounds positively revolting, not to mention i am quite certain it doesn't contribute positively to the overall healthcare costs in the country

Just what I was thinking - my stomach hurts just thinking about this.

Oh but it does. It kills people off early that would otherwise drag on their lives until they get old and feeble and become a real cost burden on the system.

Since a visit to the cardiologist I have been cheffing up turkey bacon for Saturday morning breakfasts. The family is actually hooked on Morningstar Brekky sausage patties over the real deal. That said, I bought a dozen slices of thick cut, locally cured, no nitrate, bacon a couple weeks ago. Crisped it to perfection and made BLT's. Good golly Miss Molly, I could have cared less if I had a heart attack as I already felt like I died and went to the Promised Land.

My wife thought the same thing until she tried it. If you want to come down South and visit, i would be happy to take you there. We could bike there, its not too far (my wife and I did the day she tried this delicacy). That should help offset some of those healthcare costs that you are concerned about.

It's tempting (the invite), i haven't been to Atlanta since '88, but it will have to wait until i am released from my bondage at work ... too bad the Yankee/Braves match up is next week, that would have been a thrill, especially with you (and the wife) picking up the cost of the tix!

a braves tix and a little pb and bacon is pittance compared to the generosity you have shown me (and others) around here.

Yes, do extend favors to Arb, but by all means, don't dunk and dip him in PB&Bacon...

[eeeuuuwwwwweeee...but, I think I've heard this from someone else as well; just can't get over the thought myself]

Rutabagas are more fun to say.

A GLASS of bacon and peanut butter? Why in a glass? Was it blended into a very brown smoothie, or did they just stick the peanut buttered-bacon in a glass to make sure you could drink all the grease?!?

That is true. It's no guacamole but its close.

No they are strips of bacon (6 i think) served in a glass with a little cup of peanut butter on the side for dipping. Simple yet elegant.

Ingredients:
Bread
Bacon
Mayo
PB
Sliced Banana's
jam - YUMMY!

Oh, and lettuce

So I asked my son if he'd ever had bacon with peanut butter. (Seemed reasonable. It's the kind of thing a teenager might invent.)

His immediate reaction was pretty funny: "What is that, some weird old Grateful Dead thing? 'We have bacon. We have peanut butter. Why do the sensible thing and make TWO sandwiches when we can put them TOGETHER?'" He thinks a minute. "Actually, it might be pretty good."

(My husband's reaction: "Americans will buy anything.")

There is actually a Deadhead Cookbook, although I'm pretty sure this wouldn't be in it. Even though I remember reading a Jerry interview where he was eating bacon sandwiches.

Maybe it's in the Phish cookbook?

Yes, i realized by the responses that a Kind Veggie Burrito dipped in peanut butter might be an easier sell on this forum. I still think bacon would taste better.

As for your family responses, your son is wise beyond his years. Your husband is also correct, but he is looking at it the wrong way. Instead of focusing on what Americans will buy, he should focus on the positive. This is a wonderful example of American ingenuity. What other country could come up with Bacon in a Glass with a side of peanut butter!! Three cheers for the red, white and blue!! Well either that or people were stoned, had the munchies and the conversation that your son imagined followed.
